So, this might not be a big deal to you, but figuring out what to do with our bikes as the weather turns is a big deal to me. We have four bikes to accomodate and I have some constraints to how I want to store them: I want them out of the way, but accessible (because we don't always have snow on the ground). We don't have rafters, so we can't use a pulley system to get them up out of the way. We do have a shed in the corner of the backyard, but getting them in and out of there is a pain in the rear. So, imagine my surprise when I solved my dilemma for $34 spent at Harbor Freight! (I had a coupon...they're normally $47.99.)
Let me introduce you to our Bike Tree. It is holding all four of our bikes (bikes for tall people take up a lot of room!) and is easy to maneuver. It can be rolled out of the workshop area of our garage whenever I want to use it as a workshop and quickly rolled back in when I'm done.
Come on! Admit it. This is pretty darned cool!
